PLAGUE DOCTOR, yet another one of my numerous fanapaces from my ever-growing army of… fanapaces. I can’t stop making them, this is a problem.
Anyway, they’re a bit delusional and PD’s convinced everybody is sick with something, so they keep themself covered p much at all times to prevent themself from catching THE PLAGUE. They insist on giving people nonsensical medical advice/items for things that aren’t actually there. What a goof.
Their right eye’s dead and they really do not appreciate the illusion of a smile those scars give them.
"Bloom": VLISCO’s Spring 2014 Lookbook.
In their latest Spring 2014 lookbook, Vlisco, the Dutch Wax clothing and textile brand with a strong presence in West and Central Africa, reinterprets florals with their appropriately titled ‘Bloom’ collection.
It was the fourth anniversary, the second they’d made a point of celebrating. Last year, they’d gone out for a night on the town that had ended with a shootout in the Green Moon Pub with Spades Slick and Hearts Boxcars. There was no way to top that, so instead of going out, they’d decided to stay in.
I drew this picture to go with this fic! :^)
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support.
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.
This place does amazing, important work, and they are well worth supporting. Sex ed in this country is a sick joke, and sites like this are having to take up the slack, run on donations from people like us who actually want the next generation to have happy, fulfilling, safe lives full of as much or as little sex as they want.
hey folks, this one is close to home for me (literally, one of the gas companies wants to build a pipeline directly through my town) so i’d appreciate it if you could sign and signal boost.
the pipeline doesn’t:
- it does not fairly compensate property owners whose land they build on (a survayor told a townie “it’ll be in the thousands, not the hundreds!” for this 30+ year damage to their farmland)
- it does not bring gas to the towns (it just goes through, doesn’t give us any…apart from what it leaks)
- it does not bring jobs to the towns (workers are from out of state)
- it does not actually send its people to town meetings they said they’d answer questions at. they just no-show their own Q&A appointments.
- it does not pay to build or maintain roads to maintain the pipeline. the towns have to pay for that themselves. so our taxes would help maintain their pipeline.
- it does not tell us what will happen to the pipeline when the fracked gas boom ends in 30 years. probably, the pipeline will still be in our towns and our problem to dismantle.
the pipeline does:
- mess up the ecosystem. the compression stations are noisy and weird and leaky and mess up plants and animals around them. plus, you know…fracking.
- go directly through yards, back yards, farms and woodlands.
- carry the risk of leaking and explosion!
- hire police to accompany them to meetings they DO show up to, because they know the towns they’re trying to push through are not happy with them.
- pipe fracked gas. you know, the gas that makes water flammable when it’s mined? that’s a good industry to encourage, right?!
- potentially pipe other, more harmful things. in 30 years when we’re out of fracked gas, it could be pumping crude oil. they refuse to be clear on this.
- run through wetlands. and farms. so if it does wind up pumping something like oil or gas and leak, it could contaminate the wetlands & food sources as well.
- run almost entirely through small towns where populations are low and they don’t expect much strong opposition. “what’re those hicks gonna do, picket?”
this goes way beyond “Not In My Backyard.” the pipeline brings nothing good to the town, and a lot of financial and ecological burdens. not to mention the moral burden of being forced (potentially against our will) to support fracking.
so please sign and share this petition! a state-wide ban would mean no other small towns in my state have to fight against big oil to keep their gross fracking noisy pipelines out of their towns.
YOU SHOULD FEEL ASHAMED OF YOURSELF FOR THAT PUN

If you pick up the newest issue of Time Out New York today, you’ll see some drawings I did, illustrating some anecdotes of people being nice to each other in NYC (including one story that involved a cameo by Harvey Fierstein). Thanks to AD Sarah Mulligan for the fun assignment :)
